This book is fantastic! It melds history, love, loss, war and the fierce determination of the human spirit. I am going to buy this book in hard copy as I want to read parts of it again. I finished it in three days, putting it down only when other duties so required. I highly recommend it!

What makes this book important is it gives you, the reader, a concise guide to confront fear and turn it to your advantage. Well Mr. Webb‘s military service is impressive, so is his business success. However, the discussion about facing fear when you are truly at your lowest point is the “secret sauce“ of this book. I highly recommend this book.

Ryan Holiday Has written the first must read of this year! Conspiracy is more than a court room thriller or a tale of intrigue. It is a cautionary tale. He provides both lessons and warnings to what happens when driven, powerful people decide to fight back. It is also one hell of a fun lesson. Normally, I spent a couple weeks working through an audiobook. I got through this one in a couple of days. Ryan Holiday is a master storyteller. He has a unique perspective on modern media. He also is our generation’s leading stoic thinkers. He blends these two worlds well. Not only do I recommend this audiobook, I recommend buying a copy as well. This is the subject matter that we could all do well to study the lessons from both today and in the future. Great job Ryan, thanks for sharing the story with us!

I loved it and thought it was well-written and narrated. A big bonus for me was the historical background of the time. Like many young and I'll-informed young men, I admired Hemmingway for both his writing and his life. Now, it's clear to me that he was a troubled soul and a terrible friend. This is a great book and a cautionary tale about the pursuit of fame. Collateral damage indeed abounded when the "sun sat" on this book.

This is an important book. It tells how ISIS Came to be and came to power. It is excessively long. I also think that it could have better explain the many western failures to stop

If you're committed to being a better leader, then this book is a must-read. The authors explain in detail how the hard lessons learned on the battlefield can translate and be applicable in the business world. As someone who is both an Iraq Veteran and small business owner, this book had a mediate applications. I am confident that if you give this book and honest listen and sincerely apply the lessons learned, he will reap benefits from this amazing book. To the authors, thank you for your selfless service to our beloved Republic.

I loved it, it is a great listen and was told like a novel. If you like history and like stories where the "good guys" win, this is it. It is a long book, but it is worth it.
